CONSUMER CHAMPION Martin Lewis is today issuing a High Court writ against Facebook for defamation, intending to give the social media giant “a bloody nose”. “One lady had over £100,000 taken from her.” Mr Lewis said the scam ads using his image were mainly for get-rich-quick schemes

Consumer champion and MoneySavingExpert founder Martin Lewis is suing Facebook after the platform published dozens of fake adverts misusing his image and name in order to lure victims into ‘get rich quick’ scams .

He has said he will be seeking exemplary damages, but not for personal gain – any and all money paid out to him will be donated to anti-scam charities.

Mr Lewis has said the legal action was the result of months of frustration with scammers piggybacking on his reputation and preying on Facebook users with scams.

Mr Lewis said previously: “There are customers who have lost a lot of money. Some of them won’t even talk to me because they’ve seen my face on the advert and think it’s me who has scammed them – it’s an absolute disgrace.

“I’ve had enough of this. It’s affecting my reputation, but more importantly it is affecting real people who are handing over money in good faith while the scammers are raking in the cash.”

Mr Lewis has said he does not do adverts.
